Academic Advising

Meet with a TRIO advisor regularly to develop an academic plan to complete an associate's degree at Edmonds College and/or transfer on to a 4-year college or university. A TRIO advisor will discuss a student's educational goals, help plan for balanced course loads, develop quarter-by-quarter academic plans, and assist with priority registration. TRIO advisors can assist students to become not only transfer ready for their four-year institutions of choice, but major ready for their program as well!
